Good news everyone, I messaged FJK, and he's onboard as our Grand Contest Adjudicator!

Re: a video story, I'd argue that while it's a cool idea and I'd be up for that, I think it should be kept as a separate thing from this contest, though. I feel that The Golden Saber is what this contest is about, not slickness of video production.

I think all the entries should be judged on the one video, as described by Eastern 57. Back stories and build logs will make entertaining 'bonus material' after the reveal and keep us talking about the ideas and concepts. And the intrigue of how and why, may influence the vote more fairly.

Will have to be extra careful on video, eastern is a sleuth and can put you based on the smallest detail!

Looking forward to starting on this. I am already beginning to accrue some parts.  :grin:

Let's set a due date. The longer we wait, the later the due date people will want.

The video is fine by me. No talking, just putting it together and turning it on. It is really hard to express that in just photos. I got a lot of questions on how mine opened up last time at the joint of the flash unit. Video would be better to show assembly/disassembly.

Gloves required for the videos?

Since everyone seems to be anxious to get started, I am looking into the various possibilities of hosting videos in a central spot. I haven’t settled on anything definite yet. With that said, I don’t see that as an impediment to your collective suffering,  :evil: so if you want to start the contest, I don’t mind.

Once I settle on how to handle the videos, I’ll let you all know.
May the force be with you all!

Maybe this was said but we should require like a black or white background or something? Some folks post many more vids than others that it'll be a dead give away who the entrant is. That is if we're trying to stay anonymous for judging purposes?

I agree we should get started.  I think we've more or less decided on a Thanksgiving deadline/stop/submit-by and a Christmas winner reveal.  That should be sufficient... even for all those sneaksey DRL'ses..

I think Thunder was helmed to lead this off, but if he's indisposed, I could write something up this weekend.

@Darth Brooks, Backgrounds have been mentioned.  I think something like, "Blank white, neutral, unrecognizable background - just NOT your usual show-off spot." would work fine for our purposes. 

I don't think the mirror background will work.  It was fine for still shots, but it probably won't work for video, especially since you have to get all up in there.

Look out for an announcement in LED Sabers, tomorrow.

...It would have been tonight, but it's 1AM on my side of the Atlantic, and I need some shuteye  :wink:
